"The kitchen of Maite Montes

welcomes you to Navarre"


  • This complete gastronomic experience is specially designed for anyone who sees the significance of a well-prepared table: in its preparation, enjoyment, or its role in making the company of loved ones and friends more cordial. The dishes originate from the regional cuisine of Navarre. They are very popular dishes that are very easy to execute.
  • The workshop consists of five dishes; an apperitif, first course, fish, meat, and dessert. These dishes will be typical of Navarre:

  • However, we can also do other typical Spanish recipes upon request of the participants with prior notice.
